"Thank you!" Clinton shouted, according to the Times, as the crowd cheered. So we can't take this seriously anymore. We have to laugh at it.
"We have to stand up against [it]. We need to ignore it". "Women, men, mothers and fathers, teachers, everybody", she said. "And let's support other women and girls in being proud of who they are".
"I see with my own eyes the damage Donald Trump does when he talks about women and how they look", Leach began. And, as one teenage girl pointed out at a Hillary Clinton event Tuesday, his rhetoric is having a measurable impact on young women's self-esteem.
"A person who's flat-chested ... is very hard to be a "10" and "Did she have a good body? No". Even if you were alive and attuned to the world in 1997, the CNN and CBS News clips she played, casually fat-shaming Machado, are pretty jarring. "Absolutely", are among the nauseating sound bytes by Trump that are sampled in the video. "You are more than the way you look". "I can't say that either", he responds, smirking. I'm Brennan and I'm 15 years old. Brennan then asked, "How would you undo some of that damage?"
"My opponent has just taken this concern to a new level of difficulty and meanness, and it's shocking when women are called names and judged exclusively on the basis of physical attributes", she said.
Though Clinton herself has somehow avoided being the subject of Trump's image-obsessed insults, she's certainly not immune to the sexism.
